Train Dispatcher Gould Assaulted
lamt Night.
Cat in the Arm and Braised in the
From tbe particulars gathered by a Bazoo
reporter this morning, we learn that Mr.
Gould, train dispatcher at the Missouri Pa
cific office in East .Sedalia, watt brutally as
saulted last night and narrowly escaped
serious injury.
His duties being over for the night, he
left the office about ten o'clock for hie home.
Aa he w passing through the yard of the
Missouri Pacific be was suddenly assaulted
by a raan, and in the scufile received two
cut in the right arm and a severe blow in
the face, knocking him down. His assail
ut then departed, and it is unknown
whether his object was robbery, or that
be mistook him for some one for whom
fie was lying in wail to wreak liis re
The attack was certainly a bold one, for
at that hour there are usually a number o
employe? around the vicinitv. Officer
SmitT was patrolling the neighborhood, and
beard nothing of the affair until this morn
One thing is evident, and that is Sedalia
has become a stopping point for thieves am
scoundrels in their inigrationsflTffd it would
be well for our citizens to take proper pre
cautions. The police cannot be everywhere,
as we have only four men to do night and
day duty for a city of ten thousand people.
A Bazoo reporter called upon Mr. E. A
Gould this afternoon, who informed him
that he was standing at the end of a car
waiting for theyardmaster, when some one
approached him from behind and struck
him, knocking him down and bruising the
side of his face. After which the man cut
bira twice in the left arm. the wounds
bleeding profusely. His assailant then left
in the direction of the city. His injuries
are not serious though painful.

The Missouri, Kansas and Texas and St
Louis and San Francisco railroads, have at
last buried the hatchet. Henceforth the
passenger trains of the latter will be taken
through to Texas from Viuita by the M. K.
and T. on the most favorable conditions,
Formerly the M. K. and T.did ail it could
do to block the St. Louis and San Francisco
out of through business. The connections
were always bad at Vinita, and the traveler
had to race with his satchel some half a
mile to the place where the M. K. and T.
then stopped. A circular has been issued
by the general passenger agents requesting
connecting roads to put on full linesof cou
pon tickets and baggage cheeks. The circu
lar calls the route the St. Louis, Vinita and
Texas line, and says that Pullman cars will
run through from St. Louis.
When the passenger rates on Missouri
railroads were lowered to three and four
cents a mile on the- 1st of April, in con
formity to the State law, it was generally
thought by railroad men that the gross
local passenger eamings would greatly de
crease. The railway commissioners argued
otherwise and thought that low rates would
increase the volume of local travel enough
to make up for the loss in rate. It is hard
to judge from, the returns of th'ee weeks,
but at least one road running into St. Louis
has increased its local passenger earnings
under the new order of things. The Kansas
City and Northern has, without additional
expense, carried enough or more passengers
to bring up its gross receipts to a higher
point than they were last year. This ap
plies only to lecal business, and has noth
ing to do with the through business, or emi
gration business, which has been unusually
heavy this season. Farmers and dwellers
upon the road in many instances use the
cars bow between stations where formerly
they roaded it, and in general the country
folks travel more than they did. Whether
this increase is only temporary or not it is
impossible to tell. There are those who
are confident that if the next legislature
should repeal the State law the railroads as
a body would not return to old passenger

Through the Jail Wall Went Young
That Banker's Son from Zanesville.
Two weeks ago the Sunday Morning
Bazoo gave an account of the arrest
voung fellow who gave his name as
dii.and Ritidall, and who claimed to bethel who have been meddling with peopled

Randall was arrested for st aling a suit
of clothes and a valine from a hotel in
Green Ridge. He waived an examination
before Justice Clark, and was committed to
the county jail to await trial at the next
term ot the Criminal Court.
He behaved hinielf well, and this fore
noon was let out in the hall way outride
of the irou cage.in order to do some washing.
The outside door was then locked, and
Sheriff Murray went to a law office to
transact some business. This was about
10 o'clock.
After the Sheriff had transacted his busi
ness he returned to the jail with a bar of
soap. When he arrived it was to find
his prh-oner gone, and a very sug
gestive looking hole in the west
wall, underneath a window, showed how he
went. He had taken offthe door of a heat
ing stove, and with this pried out the brick,
which only consists of three layers, and
made a hole of sufficient size to admit of
the passage of his body. Then, poking his
head out into sunshine and happiness, the
rest of his body followed, and he speedily
found himself doubled up into a little heap
in the yard the hole being only about four
feet from the ground. He quickly found
his way out of the jail yard.
The prisoners say that just as the Sheriff
turned the corner of Third andLamine they
could see him from the window. Randall
had at this time gotten out two layers of the
brick, when one remarked, "here comes the
Sheriff!" Randall hearing this, gave one
lesperate kick at the remaining layer and
succeeded in bursting through.
When he made his exit he had no coat.
and wore a pair of cheap brown overalls
and vest, and a common cotton shirt. His
hair was cut as close as possible. He is
about 17 years ofage and very sharp and
Measures were immediately taken for
his recapture, and Sheriff Murray says he
is bound to have him. Up to the hour of
going to press, however, nothing has been
seen or heard of him.
The fact of the matter is, the jail walls !
on the ia-urie should be lined with boiler
iron. It is impossible to keep prisoners
locked up in the cells all the time, and a
hole through the wails can be made inside
of ten minutes. Sheriff Murray has spent
considerable money out of his own pocket
in recapturing and guxrding prisoners, and
the county should protect him fiom this
expense by promptly making the jail retire.

ago with $800. He got broke in Kansas

and have tclilioned the Indian Agent, S.
V. Marslon, to revoke all licenses and for
bid the traffic The petition is very gen
erally signed by teachers, missionaries,
merchants, Indians, and two cf the persons
who have held licenses, and has resulted in
revoking all but two licenses, with a strong
probability that these, also, will soon be
cancelled. The following are the reasons
given for asking that the trade be pro
hibited :
l-O. Because the traffic is in direct vio
lation of treaty stipulation.
2d. If it were true (which we deny) that
this traffic is necessary for mechanical or
medicinal purposes there is no occasion for
it here, because almost all goods and medi
cines prepared by the Use of alcohol are
imported and not manufactured here.
od. e believe the sale of intoxicating
liquors on a phyMcian's certificate in an ig
norant and immoral community adds
largely the sin of hypocricy and absolute
Wing, to that of drunkenness.
4th. Because it opens the flood-gates ol
debauchery and crime at our doors, with
out any form of resistance. If the ar De
partment, with every license, would organ
ize a court to try all criminals made by
this traffiic, and would furnish calabooses
and jails for their imprisonment, and faith
ful officers to execute the law against of
fenders, we should then feel that whiNi
this department was setting mad docs loose
among us it was sufficiently thoughtful of
our interest to furnish weapons of defense.
Lislly. e object because we are of the
opinion that the licenses are not revoked
and forbidden the prospects of those tribes
of Indians, now so bright and encouraging,
ill be forever blasted in their utter deg
radation, if not destruction.

Accident in Cooper County.
One day last week, Billy Tees started
from Leven's farm, in Cooper county, to
mill, carrying two sacks of corn shortly
afterwards a gentleman passing discovered
one sack of corn in the road, and on riding
about one-fourth of a mile found Billy lv-
mg speechless in the road by the other sack.
It is supposed that his horse thiew him and
dragged him. He will doubtless be able to j
explain his condition, but up to last ac
counts he had not spoken.
Yesterday I had such a bad cold that
I could not speak. I used Dr. Bull's Cough

It cost me only 25 cents.

and right where the mingling branches of

to get a view of him before they awi
him. As Egs knelt down Ost's eye cau
the gleam of something on the grass and
remarked. "Look out ! he's sot a rvoeker i
there." Eggs had not fully comprehended
the warninir. however, before he had lifted
the hat had made, by aid of the match,
a horrible disclosure. The man's head
formed the centre of a pool of clotted blood,
and a bullet-hole, with powder-burned
edges, was visible in the right temple;
while in the left, right in a horizontal line,
was another and more jagged hole. Both
were evidently caused by the one bullet.
The detectives were satisfied that this
was not a cae in their line, and so simply
called the attention of the park police to
the liody. Then Officer Harrington remem
bered that about one o'clock a. m., he had
heard a loud pistol-shot from that direction,
and he, with Officer Faily had made an un
satisfactory investigation in the hope of
learning what was the cause. The coroner
was. sent for, and shortly after daybreak
Deputy Priedicow arrived and had the re
mains conveyed to the morgue. The park
laborers immediately cutout the sod which
aras so conspicuously crimsoned, and re
placed it with clover sod, thus removing all
indications of the tragedy under the syca
mores. Tiie poor fellow who had thus
ended his life certainly could not have
chosen n more heautif a! spot from which to
take his departure.
The coroner's examination did not de
velop all of the facts in the case which
would be of interest. In the pockets of the
deceased were found patient showing that
his name was J. Hermann Koch, and that
his address was in care of II. Bertram,
saloon-keeper, at No. 404 South Seventh
street. It was learned from Mr. Bertram
that he knew Koch well, and that he (Koch)
was employed as carriage driver by Mrs.
O'Fallon, No. 281-J Pine street, having
previously been employed by C. W. Gauss
and by R ht. GoluVttin in a like. capacity.
It was his custom to come to the Centre
market for the marketing of the O'Fallon
household, and Mr. Bertram's saloon tieiug
convenient thereto, he always had his cor
respondence addressed to that place.
Mrs. O'Fallon was, of course, shocked to
Icarn that Koch had committed suicide.
He had been in her employ for a consid
erable time, but of late his mind seemed
p re-occupied and he was somewhat neg
lectful of his work. On Fridi.y last he left
the house, saying he had a suit in court, by
which he feared he would lose between
$200 and $300. He did not return any
more. He went to Bertram's that afternoon
and asked for a letter, saying that he ex
pected to receive one from his father con
tainiiigsufficienl money to pay theexiienses
of a trip to his old home. The letter, how
ever had not arrived, and he went away in
seemingly good spirits.
Thus far nothing 1ms been learned as to
where he stayed from Friday afternoon till
Sunday night, but there is a report based on
no very definite authority that he was seen
in Schnaider's garden with a young lady
about ten o'clock on Sunday night. Mrs.
Bertram, who knew Koch well, stated that
he seemed desperately in love with a girl
who, she thinks, is a domestic in a Jewish
family who lives near the corner of Garri
son avenue and Pine street. Tne lady does
not know the girl's name, but she saw her
with Koch at a ball at E-cher's hall a short
time ago. llie generally accepted theory
is, that he was disappointed in his love, am
that, giving the ladv his watch and his
keys, he left her on Sundsy night, and, go
ing to the park, finished his career. The
latter part of this theory is biscd upon the
fact that his watch and keys are missing.
But it is not improbable that the watch w.-.s
pawned to enible him to to purchase the
pistol, which was a Blue Jacket No. 2. Let -
ters found in Koch's trunk show that his
father and one or two sisters live in Berlin,
and another sister in Orsova, Hungary.
These letters indicate that the family are
all excellently educated and refined. Other
papers show that Koch was 34 vears old -
that he took out his naturalization paers
in Santa Clara county, Cal and that he 1

At the Lindell, where Mr. and Mrs.
Bates are now stopping, special arrange
ments had been made for their reception.
One of the largest rooms in the hotel was
fitted up with a bed made esecially for the
tall ieople, and furniture to correspond in
every particular. The bed, some ten feet
long, table and chairs much higher than
ordinary mortals use, while the largest
wash-bowl in the city was ako procured
for the occasion.
A HspnbHttm reporter was dispatch, d to
the Lindell yesterday afternoon for the pur-
ikisc of interviewing the giant and his wife,
and in company with two gentlemen, called
upon Mr. and Mrs Bates, in parlor 13. They
were not in the parlor when the visitors
were announced, but after a short delay the
pair appeared. It was expected that some
large eopIe would lie seen, hut when Capt.
and Mrs. Bates' entered the room there was
a bewildering silence of a few seconds dur
ing which the visitor, gazed in open
mouthed wonder. At first a very curious
sensation was fell as though one were, by
some magical influence, growing smaller
and then there apjieared to be a magnifying
glass lx.twcen.the visitors and Mr. and Mrs.
Bates. But this was quickly disjwlled by
the genial giant, who, grasping the right
hands of two of the callers in one of his
mighty hands, and saying something about
the rather chilly weather. Mrs. Bates, too,
commenced chatting ami laughing at the
surprise of the little pigmies who had called

to see her, and apjieared very ladylike and
graceful, notwithstanding her iin:ueu-e ize.
These two fenp!e first met at Newark, N. J.,

himself against the skeleton in the British

Neither Murphy nor Guy are on hand to

Jim Younger.
From lhe ?t. Paul Pioneer.
Jim Younger, of the Younger brothers,
1 confined in the penitentiary, and whose
'deeds at Northfield are still fresh in the
'memory of every Minnesotian. is in a fair
way of shuffling off this mortal coil in a
short time in the penitentiary. In his cap
ture, it will be remembered, he was shot in
the mouth, and the upper left jaw is gone,
as is nearly all of the antrum. His wounds
have nearly all healed, but occasionally
small pieces of bone work themselves out,
keeping his mouth very sore and inflamed,
these sores are almost constantly discharging
matter substance. From the loss of his
palate and upper left jw, it is very difficult
for him to masticate his food, which is
taken with but little relish.. He is unable
0 cat olher thn w( f(K)d wljch can
lie taken easily, having but three upper
teeth, and these are on the right side of the
mouth. A dentist visited him a day or two
since to see if a plate could not be fitted to
aid him in eatiug, but it was dscided that
it would only irritate his month, without
being of any benefit. The fact that a bullet
is still imbedded in his mouth, at d that it
is nearly all of the time sore, with no hope
of getting better, and slowly but surely
growing worse, shows that it is only a ques
tion of time as to how soon death will result
from the injuries. Jim is a man of iron
ill, and the amount of suffering he has
endured already would have crushed one
less determined or hopeful. He is con
r ,, r - i
iinuanr m pain, ana oiienumes very
severe. Though he says but little, tt is
plain to see that be is discouraged and
1 1 a
uown-uearrea, anu is siowiy growing
weaker. Of course, it is only a Batter of
conjecture as to how soon he will get his
freedom through death. He is in a bad
shape, and has but little hope of recovery.
The State may be relieved of caring for him
in a short time, and possibly his endurance
and determination may carry him through
two or three years at the loncrst.

discontinued, as the young lady was en
paged to a gentleman of a more reputable
character. At this McCrory seems to have
taken offence, though he continued in
friendly intercourse with the girl's family.
Last night, near the time stated alw.v,
McCrorv called at the re idence of Chamber-
the young lady was engaged, he would de
sist in his attempts to win her love. Cham
berlin, at that, hastened to assure the young
man that he entertairird no resentment,
and willingly forgave him. Shortly after,
a sister-in-law of McCrorv called at the
houe of Chamlierlin and a-ked hi daughter
to go home with her. The young l.dy con
cnted, and together thev went out. Cham
berlin, siisK-cling th it all wa not right,
soon after proceeded to McCrory' house to
look after his daughter, but finding her not
there, he continued to the hoU'e of a
neighbor, where he was told hi
daughter had gone. While crossing the
street, he was met by McCrory, who as ed
him where he wa going, and without wait
ing for an answer dealt htm a stunning
blow in the fare with a club, repeating the
blow a second time, without giving Cham
berlin au opportunity to either say a word
or to defend himself.
Chamberlin staggered home, bleeding
profusely. Dr. Long was summoned, and
upin examination found that the left eye
had been completely destroyed, white a se
vere gash almost severed the eye-lid. The
wound wa sewed up, but the doctor despairs
of saving the eye.
Up Jo a late hour McCrory had not been
found, and it i thought that he left the
city to escape punishment. Like Cham
berlin, he is n cooper, owning a shop on the
corner of Third and Mesjnis streets.

A Second-Hand Clothing Shop on
Third Street Sntered and Biflod.
Another robbery vra. rommitted last
nigiit on Third rtreet, in which some per-on
entered and robbed the second-hand cloth
ing and repair shop of Mrs. Collin
Barnes. Tne robbery was supposed to have
been committed about two o'clock in th
morning, as pirtie wen- working lit the
h .use ailj.iini.i: until after half past twelve
and report lint they are ert .in the bur
glary was not committed while they were
at work.
The thief fllct-d an entrance thrniis!i
a window on the we-t side of the hmie, In
breaking out a couple of p.ines of glass, and
undoing the catch which f wtent'd the win
dow. He got away with goods to the
amount of fifteen or twenty doll irs. The
following in a IN: of the good-c tnken :
Three men's coat.
One pair of pants.
Five white i-hirls.
Two calico shirts.
One valise, containing about five dollars
worth oi goods.
One p.iir new buckle shoe, No. 8. in
The thief put on the shoes, which Were a
great deal too large for hiiii.judging from the
fact that he left an old pair lying on the floor
by the stove, which were about a No. t in
size. One of the shoes he left was an old
brogan shoe, and the other was; an old boot,
with the top cut off.
lhe thief thorouhlv ransacked the
house. leaving the goo:ls sc.it.ered all over
the floor, and when he had got what he
siipiiosed was the best, he coolly walked out
of the b.iok door, leaving it and the window
by which he entered, open.
The satchel taken was a bl.ick oilcloth
one, with a couple ot red stripes running
clear around it. It was the property of a
Mrs. Thotnjison. who Iii'es in the country a
short distance from Sed.ili:t, and who pur
chased the goods it contained during the
day yesterday and left them in the shop,
supposing that they would be safe.
The IadiiM who own the shop express it
as their opinion that the robbery must have
been committed by some one who was well
acquainted with the way the window was
fastened, and who had visited the shop, but
could call to mind no one whom they sus
pected. Be that as it may, the thief has
got away with his plunder, and ere this is
miles away. The police, however, are
keeping their eye peeled for a man who
has a carpet sack with red stripes on it in
his possession.
A Dcliboiato Murder in Salino
Couuty The Murderer in Jail.
There are several on. flirting reports con
cerning the munler co untitled near Mar
shall on Sunday night la-t.
From the latest -vlnt-h we get from a gen
tleman who arrived thi morning from
Brownsville, it seem that one John Flynn,
who recently arrived in Marshall, for the
ptirMse of starting a saloon, was refused a
liceiiM by the town authorities. lint iiKn
establishing a grog shop, he selected
Weedon Springs, about live miles north of
the town on the line of the new railroad,
where some two or three hundred hand. are
at work.
Trouble wa predicted, and on last Sun
day evening about eight or nine o'clock,
young Wright, a son of old Adam Wright,
a well to do farmer, and a man named Kel
luin, both living in the neighborhood, were
there on a regular tear. A young in in
named Sullivan wa standing peace ihly
Hid quietly in the bar room wVn Wright
and Kelluiu walked in and began a quarrel
with the proprietor, Flynn, about the
drinks. YoungSuilivaii remarked that ''If
I wereyoii I wouldn't q.urrel about that."
Kelluiu immediately drew hi pistol and
without further provocation shot Sullivan

o'clock, Kellum, the murderer, was found
a-hep and drunk in a hazle thicket, a half
mile from th scene Of the tragedy.
Sullivan was a young man of exemplary

no part in the difficulty, except to be the
victim of a drunken, murderous brute. HL

Stolen Bods.
We all know how that sharp young man
played it fine on hi father in-law, some
years ago, before newspaper were thought
of. The interesting little story is related
in the Bible, and the gist of the joke lay
in placing spotted rods where the docks
drank. By this little piece of legerdemain
thi ingenious young man obtained two
wives and a tolerable tairstart in the world.
There was an humble imitation of this
Biblical precedent this morning. Twogen-
tlemen made up their mind to go fishing.
The rods and necessary tackle , were pro
cured, and while one of them went to pro
cure the bait, the rod were stood behind
a building in front of the Garrison House.
A young darky by the name of Hickman
came along and saw his opportunity, and
the rods. He levied upon them imme
diately and lit out for Darkeytown, where
he sold both of them. Al. Conner went to
look for his rods, and lo ! they were not.
He got on trail of the thief and finally re
captured his property. The moral of this
story if there is any morality in it goes
to show that while a fifteen-foot fishing pole
is not the most convenient thing to carry
around in a six-foot room, the chances are
if you don't carry it with you, that you and
rod both will be left.

Tamed Loose Again
.Marsh:.! Kelly received a telegram from
Mr. G. B. Jones, the City Marshal of Clin
ton, Sunday night, to arrest a young man
by the n unc nf O. G. M Crellis, who would
arrive in Sed.ilia on the 9:30 passenger train
tbe M irshal arrested his man when the
train arrivrd in the city, and took him to
the cooler, alter which he notified the Mar
shal of Clinton th.it he had arrested Mc
Crelis. Another dispatch was received from
Jones yesterday morning, telling Marshal
Kelly to hold McCrellis, as he was charged
with steiling a valise at Clinton, mil that
parties would be down ."ast night to identify

Iee got off of the crs, and seeing Marshal
Kelly, went to him anil told him that he
was the man that McCrellis had stolen the
valise from, and that he was ready to iden
tify him as the man. The Marshal told Lee
that he had turned McCrellis loose, and
he didn't know where he wa. Of course.
Lee felt a little indignant at the way the
marshal had conducted the affiir, and some
words passed between them. Lee then left
and went up town, where he soon after got
into a fus with a railroad man in front of
the Wine Hall.
The marshal apearing on the scene, ar
rested the railroad man, and was lugging
him off to the cooler, when some friends in
terfered, and told the marshal he had ar
rested the wrong man. The marshal then
turned the railroad man loose and collared
Lee, who he succeeded in locking up.
Lee rem lined in the cooler all night, and
this morning was given his liberty, and
started out to find McCrellis. Lee savs
that the valise stolen from him by McCrel
lis was the only property he had in the
world, and as he had expended between
fifty and sixty dollar to recover his
property, and failed when just on the eve of
success, that he was very naturally indig
nant at the way the business had been man
aged by the marshal.
McCrellis ha, no doubt, skipped the
town with hi ill-gotten gun, and by this
time i. far away. It is to be hoped that
Lee will catch him and recover his prop
erty, as he appears to be a hard-working
man, and one who could illy afford to lose
the valise, which contained all of his

energy shown by the Spring Company
through it excellent manager, Mr. Leslie

have been beautified, fine walks laid out
and ga piK-s run throughout the entire

been refitted entirely with large steam tables
and two new, improved cooking ranges.
Six beautiful cottages have been erected
on the eastern part of the grounds, each con

Does Deadly Woric at Choctaw
We learn from the Sherman Register that
a difficulty occurred Saturday near Choc
taw Station, between Michael Bradley,
T. H. Jones, and a man called Frenchy.
These two in company with William Ever
hertand G. W. Armstrong have been run
ning a wood yard near Choctaw station.
Very early Saturday morning a difficulty
aroe between them. Bradley accusing
Frenchy of shirking his duty and at last
called Frenchy a liar. The lie was given
in return, whereupon Bradley struck him a
blow with an axe handle. Frenchy, who
had a knife in his hand, which he had been
using in cutting meat for breakfast, de
fended himself with the instrument and
cut three terrible gashes ia the body of
Bradley, one in the bowels, one in the pit
of the stomach and one in the back just
above the right hip. Bradley expired in a
few moments. Frenchy fled at once and
has not been seen since. The partners state
that Bradley was a very quarrelsome and
overbearing man, while Frenchy was a
very quiet, hard-working and peaceable fel
low. Bradley was a large and powerful
man, whHe Frenchy was rather mall, and
of light statue. The cutting was clearly
done in self-defense.
Frenchy is known to many persons in
this city, as he was employed in a restau
rant here not long ago. Denison Xeics.

Died Frank Orates, the Xwsiaaippj
When fought to Bay by a Deni
aon Fosse.
From the Dem.on Aeu of yesterday we
learn that Constable Spence, Deputy Sheriff
Jamesi Massy, Jame Pryor and j, Siais,
who left Denison Monday tveninn, in pur
suit of the Mississippi murderer, Frank
Graves, returned Tuesday evening with his
lead body.
The party ascertained at 7 a. m. Tuesday
morning, that Grave had passed the night
at the house of Mr. Targart, near Red
river, and that he had left that place early
Tuesday morning. Mr. Tuggart had given
him a hat in the place of the one he hd
lost in tbe fight Monday. At about 10
o'clock a. m., the pursuing party overtook
Grtves at a place north of Mr. May'
farm, and about twenty-five mile from
Denison. He wa ner a house, sitting no
ler a tree when the party arrived. He got
up, and backing towards a fence, fired sev
eral shot at the party, who called upon
him to surrender, and he then jumped over
a fence into a field, with the evident in
tention of making for the brush, which joins
tbe field on the further end, the party in full
pursuit. A running fight ensued, in which
a great many shots were fired, the murderer
himself firing seven, reloading his pistol aa
he ran. The posse closing in on him, he
stopped, taking the pistol in both hand.,
placing the muzzle of the pistol to his fore
head, pulled the trigger, and fell dead, the
ball tearing off a large portion of his skull.
The body was brought to this city, and
now lies in the carpenter shop of Mr. Mills.
An inquest will be held this morning.
The man is about 5 feet 6'inches high,
and probably weighs about 120 pounds.
He is about 40 years of age.
During the melee, the aaa liviBg at the
house near where the fight occurred, was hit
by a stray bullet which produced a slight
wound in the scalp.
The gentlemen composing the party de
serve great praise for their perseverance SBd
the bravery displayed throughout this af
fair. His coat, which was found Monday evea
ing, showed conclusively that the report
that he was wounded oh Monday, was en
tirely false.
A Policeman Shoota a Man in Jef
ferson City.
From the Jefferson City Triune,
Between eleven and twelve o'clock last
night, policeman John Cohegan, while
standing ner the City Hotel, wa attracted
by loud shouting and hallooing up High
street, near Capt. Mail' store, on the cor
ner of Jefferson. Proceeding in the direc
tion of the noise, he saw three men moving
along the sidewalk on the north side of
High street, acting in a very boisterous
manner. Others were attracted by tbe un
usual noise, among them Dr. V. A Curry
of the Jefferson House. Cohegan kept
along the center of the street and did not
overtake the parties until they had reached
the corner of High and Washington Sis.,
when he crossed and remonstrated with
them. On his near approach, one of the
party, subsequently ascertained to be Gee.
Opel, broke and ran down Washington
street in the direction of the Capitol. One
of the men followed on a run after Cohegan,
shouting G d d n you what are you
running after that man for?" About mid
way down the block, Cohegan overtook
Opel, and at this moment the man who
was pursuing came up and struck tbe po
liceman. Cohegan let Opel go, and the
man who struck him, Robert Brennan by
name, tumed and ran back to High, Co
hegan after him. At the corner. Brennan
turned and clinohed him, and, after a
scuffle, threw him in the gutter, at tbe same
time, as Cohegan says, cutting him (Cohe
gan) with a knife, and slashing hi vest.
Brennan then ran down High towards the
Convent building, and Cohegn, as soon an
he had regained his feet, started in pursuit.
Jut in front of Fred. Kolkmeyer's, Bren
nan was overtaken, and Cohegan caught
him by the coat tail. Brennan turned and
the men again clinched for a tussle. Jnst
before Brennan seised Cohegan, the latter
aid to him, "Don't make another cut at
me, or I will shoot you." They ecufled
for a few momenta face to face, when Cohe
gan got his pistol out and f red The ball
entered about an inch and a half below the
navel, bearing toward the right hip. Bren
nan was then taken to Chris. Kolkmeyec
on the corner of Mulberry and McCarty,
where a Tribune reporter saw him a short
time afterwards. Dra. Willie B. Winston,
Curry and Matthews were there, and Father
Hoog was also present. Brennan said he
was running from the policeman when shot,
but this is evidently s mistake, aa he is shot
fairly in the abdomen.
At the present writing, it is impossible te
determine what will be the result. It waa
thought best not to probe for the ball laei
night, but that tbe best and only advisable
course was quiet. When we left, Brennan
was vomiting, bat from the fact that no
blood was throwa up, the wound may not
be fatal. Brennan ia represented aa being,
ordinarily, a quiet man, and had worked
for some time with Henry Kolkmeyer ia
the quarry. Cohegan gave hisuelf ap to
Dr. T. Matthews.
The most of the foregoing statement ia de
rived from Mr. Cohegan, and, we suppose,
in about the troth of the aafortanate mat
ter. John Hartman was standing ia front
ot Fred. Kolkmeyert when Cohegan aad
Brennan clinched just preceding the firing
of tbe shot. We are informed that he says
he heard Cohegan tell Brennan not to cat
at him again, bat thought they were scar
fing ia a friendly manner.
